    Detective Gordon Martines is running for Sheriff of Clark County.

    http://gordonmartinesforsheriff.com/

    On the surface I like what he has to say but I have emailed him a list of questions to see if he truly is on the side of the good guys.

    Response to questions...

    My questions to, and answers from, Det. Martines. If you have question for him I would encourage you to ask him. We need to find a really good candidate to replace Gestapo Doug...

    TBG


    Detective Martines

    It has come to my attention that you are running for Clark County Sheriff. I read the article in Freedom Outpost announcing your candidacy. I liked what I read but I have a few questions I would like to get answers to if you have a moment.

    1. Do you believe that the Sheriff is the top constitutional authority within the county?

    That seems about right, if not he should be. I can't really speak for the current or past sheriffs, but I can speak for myself, I am a constitutionalists, a life time member of "OathKeepers" and currently have a Federal Lawsuit against the Sheriff, et al, based on not obeying an unlawful order and lying about a major criminal case.

    2. Do you believe that it is the duty of the Sheriff to defend the citizens of his county against Federal encroachment and unconstitutional actions?

    I have always felt that was the Sheriff's duty and also my personal belief and vow. I have worked around the Feds for years and know that their interests don't necessarily match our own interests, since they get their orders from Washington. The Feds control local government by money and grants.

    3. Do you believe that the NV Constitution, Article 1, Section 11, #1 and the U.S. Constitution 2nd Amendment guaranty the citizens of this county that “Every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use”, without conditions?

    No conditions what so ever. The moment you start placing conditions, the flood gates will open and their will be no stopping it. The 2nd Amendment just doesn't say that any conditions can be placed against it.

    4. Do you believe that the Clark County firearms registration must be eliminated as ineffectual, costly, and unconstitutional?

    That has always been my stance and platform. First registration and then confiscation. The 2nd Amendment guarantees that the other Amendments will be followed. As a current 39 year veteran police officer, I have never solved a crime using the gun registration section. The usual law abiding citizen merely needs to record and even photograph their weapons, place that information somewhere safe and if their weapon is ever stolen, merely give the reporting officer the information, that is all that is necessary to get your gun back if recovered.

    5. Do you believe that under state preemption the only firearms laws under local control within Clark County are discharge and Blue Card?

    Not sure about the question (Discharge) and what you are asking. The blue card however will cease to exist when I am sheriff. I will merely underfund the registration section and advise the rest of the police department to avoid enforcing that particular statute. I believe it is unconstitutional in that it is only based on population and only affects Clark County in the entire state. To me that smacks of biased and prejudice and in totally contradiction to the 2nd Amendment. I equate it with the confiscation of guns by local police and national guard units during Katrina, only because of the weather. There are plenty of laws created that deal with the misuse of firearms especially with use of a firearms in the commission of a crime. Law Abiding citizens that possess firearms should not be harassed, fined, regulated, or penalized in violation of the 2nd Amendment and merely because of the "weather" or "population". It is all about Control, people control by government.

    6. Would you support constitutional carry for the state of NV?

    Yes, It would be the quickest way to reduce crime immediately, I fully support it.

    7. Do you as a law officer support the open carry of firearms by law abiding citizens for the protection of themselves and their families?

    Absolutely, and I would encourage it, especially the way things are evolving from the con man in the oval office.

    Wow. Can any of our legal experts find that in the public records? That must be an interesting case. The fact that it exists really got my attention.

    I liked Laurie Bisch, but I REALLY like this guy.

    Of course, I'd be much more interested in hearing how he tells all this to the Brady Bunch. That will tell me much more.

    I have asked him to clarify a couple of things (I think he misspoke), and to get details of the legal action against Gestapo Doug...

    I like Lauri Bisch too. All things being equal I will support the one who I think has the best chance to win.

    Sounds like a good choice. Hopefully Nevada's proximity to Kalifornia doesn't completely ruin things for you.

    Quote from his website...

    Interesting, and this is from an insider.

    Det. Martines further says, the police department has fallen into a dismal, decaying, corrupted Abyss, by mismanagement, lack of morals and principles, greed, avarice, dishonesty, nepotism, and a hidden organized crime infiltration, that has slowly occurred over the years and has spread like a virus and cancer. The majority of the street cops are honorable Law Enforcement Officers, but they are battling the criminal element on two fronts, behind and in front, and no matter who you are, operating in those kind of conditions will take it’s toll and can’t help but demoralize and corrupt any organization.

    I like what he is "saying", but would more interested in what he has "done" while he has been in uniform as to all the questions he answered. His chances will come down to MONEY and grassroots campaigning.

    Can he get NFA, NRA, GOA, OCDO AND NS (traditionally anti OC) together behind him ? Can he get veteran's groups behind him ? Can he get the cop union behind him ? Can he get the minorities behind him ? Can he get the business community behind him ? Can he raise the money to defeat the "establishment" cop the LVPD hierarchy wants in ?

    Time will tell. You may want to tell him going anti Obama in question # 7 is not going to help you sway the Obama Kool Aid drinking gun owner/pro 2nd amendment voter to your side. Believe me, they are out there. When you are running on the pro 2nd amendment it should always be about them (government in general and not a specific person) versus us.

    If he has DONE what he preaches/says, he has a fighting chance with the right groups and money.

    WOW! I REALLY like Martines guys. I do agree with Navy though. Actions speak LOUDER than words. Also, if he can get the backing. Another are the minorities. Although he is one, MOST drink the Obama Kool Aid. They've been drinking from the cup of the democrats for YEARS. Most are completely dependent on the government (i.e. welfare, and other government programs). Most will fight ANY candidate that is not only a minority but also conservative. Case in point, anyone remember Herman Caine?

    Well MAC702, you've already met me. I'll leave it at that.

    In MY position, I'm much closer to the "mindset". Notice that I DID NOT SAY ALL minorities. Even this Detective Martines would know what I'm talking about. Anyway, from my stand point I CAN tell you that MOST of them would stand against him AND why. I'm no politician and I'm not going to try and be "politically correct". Furthermore, I will not appease anyone here. Heck, even I get the "race card" called on me AND worse. The sad part is that this is done BY MY OWN PEOPLE. Why? Because, I don't share the same sentiments that they do. I BELIEVE IN SELF SUFFICIENCY. I am my own man. I am a FREE man. I THINK, therefore I AM. PERIOD. THIS is why there are those of my people that are called "Uncle Tom".

    Humph, we're just conservative in thought and in our nature. Because we choose to THINK for ourselves, this goes against the establishment. I will NOT be enslaved by the shackles of despotism. Det. Martines is a member of another minority group that shares MANY of the same ideologies as mine. Unfortunately, THAT IS THE TRUTH. He has an uphill battle. His conservative views have already alienated him from most of his people. Believe me, I know how that feels.

    Like I last stated...Case in point, anyone remember Herman Caine? He was ridiculed and humiliated. By who? By MOST African-Americans. In fact, he was even accused of multiple adulterous affairs. And THESE accusations were fabricated (this was PROVEN by Fox News). Did this matter? No. The point of the attacks were to merely discredit him. After so much humiliation, he dropped out of the race. Who did MY people choose as their champion? The Chicago Thug. Barack Hussein Obama. The man with NO experience at all over Herman Caine who IS a BUSINESS SUCCESS (owns his own business and is a millionare) and a PROVEN leader. Remember those "Obama Phones"? Yeah, he coerced their votes for the second term. MY people are worse off now than they were before HE was elected. Here's some REAL statics. My people make up 6% of the American population, yet we make up for 48% of the prison population. 74% of my people's families are out of wedlock. And yes, most of the "fathers" are not around to father their children nor take care of the families they make. Poverty is at an all time high. With such a high poverty rate, so is the crime rate. Tisk Tisk. And I'M OVER THE TOP.

    This is reality folks. Life is not the same for all. My perspective is unique. Walk a mile in my shoes BEFORE you say that I'm over the top. Anyway, this thread is for Det. Martines. What do the rest of you think about him?

    I'm not sure where that came from. I'm merely stating that I do not agree that 'most minorities are completely dependent on the government (i.e. welfare, and other government programs)' as you stated matter-of-factly. If it was purposeful hyperbole, I apologize for missing it.

    Since you are merely stating that you don't agree. Then simply state that. Let your yes be yeses and your no be nos. And no Mac, these are stated factual statistics and not "figures of speech" as you are suggesting. Furthermore, I did state "matter-of-factly" about the views that the majority of the two minorities do hold. Why do you think that the Republican party tries so hard to offset this? That's why they chose Mr. Caine to run as one of the candidates for the Republican party. Like I stated before. My perspective IS unique. I AM a minority. I'm around both groups everyday as part of my job. I hear their political discussions as well as the "talking points" they hear on TV. I've both seen and EXPERIENCED what is done to conservative minorities. Det. Martines is no exception. NOW ARE ALL MINORITIES LIKE THIS...NO. If you include EVERY SINGLE MINORITY GROUP IN THIS COUNTRY as part of your statement, then the statement is one of ignorance. How can you speak on behalf of ALL minorities? Each group has it's own view points. That's why I'm ONLY referencing the two groups most closely attached to this discussion. Det. Martines' last name would suggest his origin is in one particular group (for those that don't know, it is of Hispanic origin). My origin is the other group (African-American). Historically, both groups share similar experiences and therefore have come to accept a number of the same beliefs. In addition, both groups have an overwhelming majority that has a gross distrust of conservative groups and those who associate with them.

    As for your apology, I accept. And I say thank you for it. However, let me also extend my apology as well. I've dealt in this "other world" for so long that the air there is so fresh, it's nauseating. I really didn't come here to discuss the unpleasantries of these two groups. Mac, you are indeed a VERY intelligent individual. It's these and many other points that have not been stated here that I discuss and defend everyday. Please, everyone accept my apology. It is my wish for Det. Martines to become Sheriff. I truly do believe in him. He is one of the few that is standing up with his conservative views even though he will undoubtedly become ridiculed, lied about, discredited, etc. With that kind of courage, HE can make a difference in our city.

    Since it is I that has disrupted this post, I will excuse myself from it. Please everyone, especially you Mac, enjoy this thread! And again, my most sincere apologies (and my utmost sincere apology to you Mac).

    Thumbs up

    First off hello every one I new to the forum, but not new to open carry. I would like to say I know Gordon Personally, and can say he is a stand up guy, with that said his platform positions on Guns are outstanding. he has many times said he wishes more people would open carry, because it would Reduce crime and make Clark county Safer. Gordon is a personal hero of mine and i have copies of many of his court transcripts, and other documents that were entrusted to myself and others, the content is disturbing to say the least, But Gorden's awesome moral character is shown on every page. i personally could not see voting for anyone other then Gordon for Sheriff of Clark county in 2014.

    on a separate note I am a active shooter and love open carry and have turned many others onto it in the past, also recently i was Thanked by a Off duty CHP officer for open carrying into Costco after being harassed. I can only hope getting Gordon into office will positively Change the views of open (and concealed) carry of handguns. I would like to also state the reason Gordon and myself see eye to eye is the fact that we both despise corruption on ANY level. if you are going to quote me please remember these words " I am not anti-government I am Anti- corruption"

    I would like to say to all other open carriers out there Thanks for open carrying and your support of the 2nd amendment , and I would like to thank any LEO's out there who openly support open carry or concealed carry!


    I would love to hear others views of Gordon running for sheriff in 2014.

    Detective Gordon Martines, Clark County Nevada Sheriff 2014

    Gordon filed a FEDERAL lawsuit against Metro Police Department and Sheriff Gillespie, et al. He literally has put his life on the line and this is the kind of man we need for our sheriffs across the country! One willing to risk his life for the preservation of truth and freedom! I am Gordon's campaign manager and before I agreed to endorse and represent him, I sent him these questions. Please review and trust the fact that Gordon IS the "top cop" for the job:

    QUESTIONS FOR “SHERIFF GORDON MARTINES” - Page 1 of 2 pages


    1) Will you enforce UNCONSTITUTIONAL laws that the Federal Govt passes?

    Never have before, still, and never will, so help me God. This is especially true regarding the 2nd Amendment. I am an old school type of person. I can remember the Hunter Safety course I took in my High School in Barstow California in 1964, I was fourteen. I can remember my mentor Bill Walters 30 yr retired Marine, showing me in a catalog, different weapons, rifles and handguns that could be bought through the mail. I also remember the crime rate not as high as it is now. Strange how that works out, more gun laws equals higher crime rate. Being a 38 year veteran still employed Police Officer has not change my attitude toward strictly enforcing and obeying the U.S. Constitution. All other Laws, ordinances, rules are secondary and had better not conflict with the Constitution and Bill of Rights.



    2) Will you halt drone activity in Nevada?

    I will use every avenue and powers granted me, in my duties and responsibilities, to protect the citizens that I am responsible for and their safety and security. I have never been a big fan of unbridled Government intrusion into the privacy of law abiding citizens. Drone activity (wire taps, pole cams, tracking devices, and outer space cameras, are valuable tools in Public Law Enforcement, but only after other lawful and usual surveillance techniques have been exhausted and proper approval by our court system who grants that authority. A perfect example is wire communication interception (wire taps). I have been involved in six (6) in my lifetime, and managed two (2) under the courts direction and limitations. If instructions and limitations are properly followed by the courts and law enforcement, safeguards are automatically in place. The Patriot Act passed by the federal government negated many of these safeguards, which I am vehemently opposed to. Our Amendments were shredded by the passing of this act. I don’t support unauthorized use of drones.


    3) Do you support the war on drugs?

    I have never used illicit drugs, nor will I ever use illicit drugs. A real war on drugs is not being waged at this time. The real motive is complex and corrupted. Taxes are not being collected, violence is definitely associated, there is no truth in prosecution and prison sentencing, tax payer costs are sky rocketing and are wasted, needlessly. Corruption and profits go together and have infected the police administration and leadership of my beloved police department, and the way they conduct business, and this includes the DEA, and the Nevada Department of Investigations. I am in support of the war on illicit dangerous drugs poisoning our citizens and definitely the part about restricting the access of drugs to juveniles, but not in the way it is being conducted now. The way it is being conducted now violates so many Constitutional Laws it is almost unrecognizable.

    4) Last year, there around 35,000 new laws enacted, and it is said that the average person breaks 6 laws a day. This is out of control, and what are your thoughts on Jury Nullification and only enforcing laws which harm other people?

    Crimes against persons are already in the priority food chain and have always been more severely treated than property crimes. It all pretty much boils down to “Money.” Most cases are pled away without juries being involved. Plea bargains are common place and necessary, otherwise the court costs would double or triple. Court rooms and Court houses would also double and triple. We already have numerous laws on the books and pretty much cover any crime committed. Lack of Enforcement or prosecution usually is what causes more laws to be enacted. Any method to help stream line the process and not violate anyone’s rights or due process, I am in favor of. Our system of Justice is not by all means perfect, but in my opinion, it is still the best in the world.



    5) Every year we hear that Metro needs more money. Every day we see speed traps, not to make us safer but, it seems to generate more revenue. What would YOU do to reduce the budget and make the Department more efficient and get the police off of our backs? Is the money going into CAFTA?


    I would only be guessing where the money actually goes, but I can tell you where it isn’t going. First off, there is absolutely no need to have (13) thirteen Civilian Directors making 160k, a year working for the police department. They are only used as buffers to cover for the corruption, avarice, greed, criminal activity and incompetence of the current administration and leadership. The latest example is the 42 million dollar police radio rip off contract. If I had the power, I would track exactly where that money went and into who’s pocket. Next I would examine the vehicle acquisition contract, tow company contract, gas allocation contract, vehicle repair contract, jail construction contract, police building contact (lease), pretty much every contract that the police department signs with private companies, which pretty much would balance the budget quite nicely. Not many people know that each officers is only allowed (10) rounds of ammunition to qualify with every three (3) months, with no practice ammo available unless you fail to qualify. This is in dark contrast to when I started in this community in 1978. In those days you were afforded 100 rounds of practice ammo per month and you qualified with 50 rounds of ammo every three months. For those of you that don’t shoot, this skill is perishable and is minimum mandatory training. I was just contacted by a police officer from North Las Vegas Police, he told me directly that patrol officers are required to write (4) citations per shift or face reprimand. It is commonly known that (15) fifteen citations are required per traffic officer in Metro. The only quota that I am aware of for citations for patrol officers is in Laughlin, and that is (30) citations per month. I have never been a fan of quotas and have never met any quota imposed upon me. I have been punished, transferred, passed over for special assignments, and generally disliked by upper management, but I am still here and you can be assured “NO Quotas”, from me as long as I am Sheriff. Tickets are revenue only.



    6) What would YOU do to bring transparency to the department?

    That couldn’t be easier, just merely tell the Truth. Police work is a very dirty business, smoothing out the south end of what one human does to another can be very judicial and discretionary at times. It can be done in such a way as to minimize the pain to love ones and friends, but the facts of the case must not ever be convoluted or omitted or tainted. This is very necessary for trust and integrity to develop between the police department and the public. If this trust is ever lost, like it is now, it is very tough to regain. This Truth would happen right at the beginning of my term and last to the end.





    7) Are you pro 2nd Amendment, and are you willing to make a Public Proclamation that you are and that you are willing to stand up for the Federal Government against banning of guns?


    I have always professed to being pro 2nd Amendment and have and will again Pledge my support for not only the 2nd Amendment but for all of the Bill of Rights, which if I have my way, will be posted in every police sub-station under my watch.



    8) What do you think about NDAA and would you prohibit the enaction of it in your capacity as Sheriff?

    If there was anyway to stop this from happening or being enacted I would help to stop it in anyway legally possible. This is a very scary enactment and I would not allow such a thing to be enforced in this county. Somebody should have stood up and complained about this when they interred the Japanese Americans in 1942. Look how long it took to apologize to their ancestors by President Reagan. We are in some troubled times and there needs to be somebody to stand tall against these injustices and I am that person as long as there is depth, breath and honor left in my body.






    9) What would you do to protect the people of NV from overreaching government?

    The people of this county would be my responsibility to make sure their rights are protected against any and all enemies, foreign or domestic. I have never completely believed in or completely respected the temporary hired help in Washington. They have a different and unholy agenda in mind, and in my opinion, they think everybody is expendable in order to achieve that agenda. The illusion that we are “Free” is slowly diminishing by more and more restrictions and taxes imposed by government. The tea party is beginning to have more validity than ever.







    10) How do you feel about Executive Orders issued by the President? Do they have any legal standing?

    The separation of powers is supposed to prevent dictators and tyrants from taking over. I believe the executive orders have legal standing but are not law, yet. It takes the congress to codify those orders. I believe they will because most are just “drones” anyway, and will do what this con man orders. If these orders regarding banning guns, become law, I will consider them to be unconstitutional and will not follow them or assist any federal agent to follow them. I have heard something unbelievable in that, 25 percent of the military would use force against law abiding citizens that resist or refuse to give up their weapons. In my opinion this is going to be the basis of a civil war, if this happens. I believe it is the duty of the Sheriff of the county to prevent any intrusion by the military to use force against law abiding American Citizens to enforce an unconstitutional order or law.









    11) Would you be willing to assist sub-machine gun wielding federal officers in assaults on health food stores? After all, these represent a direct attack on the revenue of the giant international pharmaceutical companies.


    The Sheriff is responsible and has the authority for enforcing the laws of the State and County. Any intrusion, action, or force, by Federal Agents must be authorized and accepted by the Sheriff of that county and comply with those laws. If the Sheriff disagrees with the enforcement of Federal Laws by Federal Agents, he is under no obligation to assist, but is under the obligation to make sure that American citizens in the county are not subjected to unconstitutional laws and unconstitutional treatment.









    12) Last, but, not least, can you name and describe any of our Bill of Rights? If so, which ones?

    Truly my favorites are listed in the following order as to their importance to me.
    First Amendment, 2nd Amendment, Fourth Amendment, Fifth Amendment, Sixth Amendment, Tenth Amendment, and Fourteenth Amendment.
    I have dealt directly formerly and in-formerly regarding these Amendments as a fully commissioned Law Enforcement officer for the past 38 years. In my opinion, they are not rights for the individual per se, but are mostly rules for government not to violate and are absolute in nature. I am currently involved in a Federal Lawsuit against the LVMPD, and fifteen other defendants for violating my civil rights while still employed as a police officer. I take the Bill of Rights to be very serious, absolute, and a magnificent document that we all should cherish, respect and live by and appreciate that we live in a country that abides by these Amendments as Law. Any government branch that violates these Amendments should be considered oppressive and thus negates their authority to rule and govern, and they should be treated and prosecuted as traitors, and I will help in any way that I can, to make that happen.
    Amendments (Transferred from published documents)
    • First Amendment – Establishment Clause, Free Exercise Clause; freedom of speech, of the press, and of assembly; right to petition
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    • Third Amendment – Protection from quartering of troops.
    No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
    • Fourth Amendment – Protection from unreasonable search and seizure.
    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    • Seventh Amendment – Civil trial by jury.
    In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
    • Eighth Amendment – Prohibition of excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment.
    Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
    • Ninth Amendment – Protection of rights not specifically enumerated in the Constitution.
    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Gordon is a personal hero of mine and i have copies of many of his court transcripts, and other documents that were entrusted to myself and others, the content is disturbing to say the least, But Gorden's awesome moral character is shown on every page. i personally could not see voting for anyone other then Gordon for Sheriff of Clark county in 2014.

    on a separate note I am a active shooter and love open carry and have turned many others onto it in the past, also recently i was Thanked by a Off duty CHP officer for open carrying into Costco after being harassed. I can only hope getting Gordon into office will positively Change the views of open (and concealed) carry of handguns. I would like to also state the reason Gordon and myself see eye to eye is the fact that we both despise corruption on ANY level. if you are going to quote me please remember these words " I am not anti-government I am Anti- corruption"

    I would like to say to all other open carriers out there Thanks for open carrying and your support of the 2nd amendment , and I would like to thank any LEO's out there who openly support open carry or concealed carry!


    I would love to hear others views of Gordon running for sheriff in 2014.

    I searched 8th Judicial district, for a State claim, found him as a defendant along with Metro.... Searched U.S. District court for a Federal claim, found him as a Defendant along with Metro. There are some more exhaustive searches to try on the Federal level, so I sent an email to Travis as he has a CM/ECF account. hope he can help.

    Cannot speak for Travis, but I have shared a common journey with him through the legal processes we have been involved with. We have been coming to common conclusions regarding the political process.

    To vote someone as Sheriff, seemingly authorizes them to enact State violence against people who have not adversely affected another person.

    To vote someone in as a "lawmaker" seemingly authorizes the "lawmakers to position people with differing opinions in the cross hairs of those who enact the violence for them.

    It is becoming apparent to me that one of the most violent things I have done in my life is Vote!

    On the upswing, those yard signs sure do make good target holders....
